NICEIC has launched its new ‘blended’ Inspection and Test 2392-10 course, which is designed to reduce the amount of time contractors have to spend away from their work. Developed in association with Virtual College, the new course follows on from the NICEIC’s highly successful 17th Edition online solution.
The new Inspection and Test 2392-10 course blends e-learning resources with two days at a centre for practical assessment where the Global Online Assessment (GOLA) test can be taken. By combining the two methods, the time learners need to spend away from work is reduced by half, from four to two days.
This innovative style of course provision allows learners to take a flexible approach to skills development and reduces any potential loss of income as a result of time away from work, job rescheduling and losing contracts. Employers also stand to benefit by limiting the impact of staff training commitments on workload and minimising the cost of accommodation.
“The new Inspection and Test 2392-10 course enhances traditional learning through the careful integration of e-learning technology, combining the best of both worlds,” says Alan Wells, NICEIC’s Head of Electrotechnical. “This saves learners and their employers both time and money, while allowing them to keep their knowledge and skills up-to-date.”
